On calling, we can hear & see them. They see us, but no sound from us. The Skype message says it can not hear us, nor does the Test call. All was working until latest Skype update actioned.
Does the (or any) update change the settings, I suspect not, but since then lost Mic. On checking Mic, all is reported as working. I have now discovered that the E2500 webcam, says that the Mic is Muted. As I can not find out how the Mic can be switched, I arrive back at my update question, HELP. Many thanks

Re: Friend can not hear us via Skype
If the mic is really been muted, do the following:
Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Voice [tab] -> In Voice Recording area press "Volume..." button -> check if "mute all" is unchecked and adjust the slider to proper position

The Camera and Audio setups are unrelated in both Windows and Skype.
Please check your Windows Audio devices volume settings and specifically the Microphone settings: it appears to be disabled or the volume level set much too low. The windows settings overrides the settings in Skype (or in other words, Skype volume settings are a subset of the Windows volume settings).
Check that Skype audio is setup properly after starting Skype:
Tools -> Options -> Audio Settings
-> select your required devices and volume levels.
During this ajustment process, make free calls to Skype 'Echo / Sound Test Services".
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go!
Please reinstall your camera drivers.If you still face the same issue then reinstall skype.If the problem still exists then you will have to ask your friend to do the same.Before you tell him to do that make sure you test with any other person on your skype and check if he is facing the same issue or not.
What it sounds like is that the Audio Setting has not been set to that mike. To do so, go to tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings. Go to the Microphone drop down and select the pleo camera microphone. Then on the bottom of the page, SAVE and it should be good to go. Hope this will solve your problem. Bud
You can check all the Sound recording settings in Windows. Could be that the default device for recording is set to the sound card rather than the mic of the webcam. Check the Windows setting as well as the Skype input device settings.
Both try using windows live and set up audio and video in the settings as you did with Skpe, as it's a similair programme and supports any camera.
If that works better then Skype has a problem with your camera makes.
